Quote of the Week – Henry Morris

Quote 3

“In medieval Europe a common organisation was made possible by a system of common values and beliefs. In our time that element of unity in the life of society will be attained by the organisation of communities around their educational institutions… every local community will become an educational society.

Education is not only the dissemination of knowledge, but an induction into a way of life… it is as members of a community that the life of action can best be realised and cur souls saved.

We shall not acquiesce in a secular education which is merely utilitarian concerning itself only with efficiency. The greatest and most important task education could have is to construct the world of youth and the adult to give them faith to live in it and competence to cope with it.” – Henry Morris, Cambridgeshire Secretary of Education
